Since 1994, Robert J. Fleming has worked hard to build a reputation in the Atlanta legal community. As a result, Mr. Fleming enjoys an "AV" rating with Martindale-Hubbell Law Directory and has been named numerous times as one of Georgia's "Super Lawyers" in personal injury and business litigation by the publishers of Law & Politics and Atlanta Magazine.
The vast majority of the cases referred to us are referred by other attorneys and law firms. Sometimes this occurs at the very beginning of the process, other times after the issues have been identified and the case is further along in the litigation process. This is especially true for large and complex dental malpractice cases. Robert J. Fleming has achieved great successes and has personally handled cases that have originated from all over the United States, Canada and Mexico. In addition, our firm has lawyers licensed to practice in Georgia as well as other jurisdictions. Some of the common situations which result in a referral to Robert J. Fleming are:
- Local Counsel - The referring attorney or firm does not have a presence in Atlanta. They are not familiar with the local judges and rules. Many times, it is advantage to retain Robert J. Fleming to act as local counsel in Georgia state or federal court. This would involve you remaining lead counsel for the case, and our firm assisting you in ways that would be specified in the association agreement that would be signed by the clients and the law firms.
- Trial Counsel - Many lawyers or law firms specialize in areas of law other than litigation. Often, they originate cases that must be litigated aggressively and/or tried in court in order to obtain maximum results for the client. Our practice is dedicated to litigating and trying cases. We have developed an expertise in trying both personal injury and business litigation cases in the areas of medical malpractice, dental malpractice, automobile and trucking accidents, wrongful death, pharmacy error, workers' compensation injuries, workplace injuries, pedestrian accidents, serious dog bites, motorcycle accidents, DUI litigation, brain injuries, mesothelioma litigation, and commission disputes.
- Specialized Area of Law - Robert J. Fleming has extensive experience litigating and trying complex cases involving personal injuries, business litigation, dental malpractice and medical malpractice. Due to our extensive experience in handling large and complex dental malpractice cases, many Georgia lawyers refer dental malpractice cases to our firm. Other lawyers and law firms often refer cases to us so that they can leverage our specialized knowledge and experience in these types of cases and to maximize case value. This arrangement could take the form of assistance to the referring lawyers, consulting with us, a co-counsel, referring the case to our firm, or any number of other scenarios that we agree to, based on what is needed and what is best for the clients involved.
If you have a case that fits into one of these categories and are thinking of associating co-counsel or lead counsel in order to better leverage the case, please call us at (404) 525-5150 for a free consultation on your case. We will gladly review the case to see if we can add value and whether it makes sense to associate us or not. We are here to help.
